ETH Zurich has made significant investments in inspire AG.
In nearly all of today’s manufacturing industries, deburring, rounding and polishing are required production steps. Due to continuously increasing demands for product quality, precision and surface finishing with simultaneously rising cost pressure, companies are facing new challenges to an ever greater extent. DeburringEXPO will present innovative solutions for meeting these challenges at the Karlsruhe Exhibition Centre from the 13th through the 15th of October, 2015. The exhibitor list for the deburring and polishing trade fair already includes more than 70 exhibitors from eight countries (status as of 25 June 2015). The supplementary expert forum additionally offers a great deal of valuable knowledge.
For advanced environmental protection and workplace safety: the Chinese Government has initiated various measures designed to curb China’s high air pollution. Many foundries are affected by the new regulations too – but not the customers of StrikoWestofen Asia (Taicang). This is because melting furnaces and dosing furnaces made by the StrikoWestofen Group fall significantly below even the new maximum permissible limits for energy consumption and dust emissions.
LFM Software announced today that it is launching major enhancements to its laser scan technology portfolio with new releases of LFM NetView and LFM Server. The introduction of new 3D mark-up functionality to both products allows users to add, access and share asset intelligence in the form of tag identifiers, attributes and comments as well as links to associated documents and information.
A cooled sensor system for high-temperature areas up to 800°C – this is the result of a current collaborative research and development project. An innovative Swabian company together with the Institute of Nuclear Technology and Energy Systems (IKE) at the University of Stuttgart have designed a passive cooling system that facilitates the use of off-the-shelf inductive sensors in high- temperature areas. The main application for this technology is in process optimization for pyrometallurgy in the metal processing industry.
Companies in glass machine manufacturing, the glass industry and the glazing trade can now register for glasstec 2016, the International Trade Fair for Glass Production, Processing and Products, which will be held at the Düsseldorf Exhibition Centre from 20 to 23 September 2016.
After five days Messe Düsseldorf delivers a very positive summary of “The Bright World of Metals” on Saturday 20 June. The metal fairs quartet registered good marks on the exhibitors’ as well as on the visitors’ side. In particular the internationality again increased distinctly and now amounts to 56 percent at the visitors and 51 percent at the exhibitors.
AVEVA announced today that SUEZ ENVIRONNEMENT America Latina, is deploying a fully Integrated Engineering & Design (IE&D) solution for the first time on a major capital project. AVEVA software has been used for the Design, Build and Operation of Cogeneration Ciudad Juarez, an energy generation system from biogas. It will benefit from a suite of integrated 2D and 3D applications that improves the consistency of deliverables across engineering disciplines, while increasing quality and data reliability.
Thanks to its proven record as Hunter Foundry Machinery Corporation’s most advanced matchplate molding machine, the HLM Series is being introduced to the world foundry market at GIFA 2015 (Hall 15 – Booth FO1), the industry’s premiere conference.
A challenge to the foundry industry: revision of the Technical Instructions on Air Quality Control (TA Luft).
At the inter airport Europe 2015 tradeshow, NORD DRIVESYSTEMS will show drives for baggage handling combining energy-saving motors, distributed electronics (top system efficiency rating IES2) and helical-bevel gearboxes.
AVEVA announced today that it is opening a new Centre of Excellence for Operations Integrity Management Solutions for Owner Operators (OOs) in the oil & gas, process plant and power industries.
During the upcoming trade fair GIFA, AGTOS will show the foundry industry current concepts of shot blasting technology. As far as the machines are concerned, a complete shot blasting plant will be shown which is also suitable for the treatment of aluminium parts. This machine requires a relatively small floor area and is characterised by a low loading height. The loading and unloading process can be carried out both manually and fully automatically.
New technologies require new cooling concepts and a consequent lightweight construction. In high pressure die casting ducts for cooling or oil are traditionally realized by sliders or drilling afterwards. However, such cavities are bound to straight axes.
AVEVA today announced that WUHUAN Engineering Co. Ltd. (WUHUAN) has adopted AVEVA’s Integrated Engineering & Design (IE&D) software solution.
12 to 15 May saw the holding of wire Russia 2015 as the leading Russian trade fair for wire, cable and wire-processing industries at the Moscow exhibition centre Expocentre.
Sandvik Process Systems, the world’s leading manufacturer of steel belts, will use this year’s GIFA fair to highlight the properties of its specialized steel belt grades and the opportunities for steel belt-based conveying and processing in high temperature applications.
